I love you madly, Abby. I love you like you love your golf costume. That much. Hit them long and fluid today, babe. Then come home and I will be waiting for you on the couch just sitting, loving not golfing.

Knee deep in rewrites of the Love Warrior screenplay. 
I am just beside myself with gratitude this morning. I truly believe that this movie is going to free people.

Dearest Marissa: Thank you for breaking from your incredibly timely and important work writing and producing at @handmaidsonhulu to create this masterpiece. I can feel your fire and wisdom in every line. 
Dearest Oprah, Emily, Carla, Harpo: I am so proud of our All-Girl Band.

Dearest all of you: I hope you love this. We are going to have so much fun. Perhaps we shall have a premiere party where EVERYONE is invited and all of us stay home in pajamas and carbs and text each other our feelings about the film? R.S.V.P. Yes, No, Maybe?

I have my dream about who will play me….But our team wants this community’s ideas: Who do you think should play me? Abby? Craig? Sister?

Big pain can result in beautiful art. Carry on, Love Warriors.

This week I went to meet a new friend. That same day, I spoke on stage to thousands of people, but meeting the new friend all by myself  is what I was nervous about. I always worry that people will be disappointed when they meet me IRL because I am so much wiser and more charming behind a keyboard or on a stage, when I have had time to think and prepare and edit and rehearse. Maybe My introverted socially anxious artsy bunnies will understand.
Anyway, when I was on my way to meet my new friend, Sister sent me this text. 
SISTER somebody today, my koalas. 
PS. I was unimpressive and unprepared and my new friend liked me anyway. We are at our best when we are unimpressive.

Hi! Let’s talk about this. If you’ve done this in the past to me and or/ Abby- it’s okay. We are all learning. But it’s time to know better so we can do better.

When we make sexual, objectifying, or relational innuendos to a same sex couple that we’d never make to a mixed sex couple- we THINK we’re revealing our coolness, open mindedness and progressivism. IN FACT, we’re revealing the opposite-  an inner level of homophobia that includes disrespect for same sex marriage. 
I understand that sometimes, with those comments, we are also expressing some sexual awakening or confusion: but this is the sort of thing to work out with close, trusted friends or therapists: not a married couple we don’t know. 
Same sex couples deserve and require every bit of honor and respect offered to mixed sex couples. Honor us by resisting the knee jerk response to sexualize our relationship and partners, okay?
All my love forever.

YOU DID IT. 
YOU DID IT AND THEN YOU DID MORE. 
You never stop showing up.  Undaunted. Thank you for always showing up -- for people you don’t know -- to help heal the world by doing right by one precious person at a time. Thank you. 
We needed $110,500 to give 19 Brave kids a chance to start a new life. 
Then we found out 3 more kids needed us.  So we asked you for more.
We needed $124,000. 
You gave $200,042.  In 24 hours. 
Because of you, our 22 Brave Ones get what they need!
These tenacious, preserving kids will find out TODAY that strangers they will never meet see them, believe in them, and are showing up for them. 
AND GUESS WHAT ELSE?  So will the Next Ten!! Those Ten – who without your support would have walked into City Living NY to courageously ask for the help they need and deserve, only to languish on a waitlist and face independent life utterly alone -- will now find out that they do not have to be alone anymore.  They will learn that, because of a group of strangers, they do not have to wait any longer for the support they deserved long ago. 
And LISTEN!  Because you gave so outrageously, Not only do we get to stand in the gap for these 32, but we get to do more. 
What City Living NY said they need most for these kids is a part-time social worker to help them process their trauma and strategize for the future – professionally and personally.  They desperately needed one part-time social worker for this vital role.  YOU GOT THEM TWO. 
You, this community – with our heartbreak, love, outrage and hope -- are building the world we believe in. Let’s believe it and build it forever.

Undaunted.
This community. 
We are a collection of humans heartbroken, overwhelmed, and outraged by the grief and injustice in this World.  In these times.  And Yet. 
And yet, we keep showing up. Showing up to relentlessly defend each other’s rights; showing up to stand in the gap for the forgotten. 
10 hours ago, we asked you to Love on 19 kids who have spent their lives in foster care, who are forced to start a new life in a gigantic city, utterly ALONE. Without a family, without a community, without what they need to start a life.  In the last 10 hours you have raised $104,917. 
Amazingly, more than 3,000 of you have given to make this possible. 
We only need $5,083 more to stand in the gap for these 19. 
This community. 
And Yet.
We just found out on a phone call today that 3 more kids need us. We need to stand for these three too. They will not be alone, not on our watch. 
So our goal just got higher. We are keeping donations open tonight.  Please give what you can at the link in my bio above -- $5, $10, $25. ⬆️ Every penny we receive will go to these kids.  TogetherRising.org/give 
This community.  Our heartbreak, our love, our outrage, our small gifts – taken together – will change the world. 
The world is brutal.  And beautiful.  Do not be daunted.

“Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world’s grief.
Do justly now, love mercy now, walk humbly now.
You are not obligated to complete the work,
But neither are you free to abandon it.”
– The Talmud 
The world is full of grief and injustice. Here is how we remain undaunted: We stand up to relentlessly defend every human right, we continuously stand in the gap for each forgotten human – One Precious Person At A Time. Repeat Forever. 
That’s what Love Flash Mobs are about – that’s what Today is about. 
Right now, there are 19 kids in NYC whose futures depend on us showing up. As usual, 100% of what we receive from you will go out the door for them. 
When your baby moves out of your home—to a dorm or apartment—will you pick out new sheets, drive the truck, meet the roommate and whisper to her before you walk out the door: “The best is ahead for you, my love. This will be hard. But we can do hard things. And you are not alone. We are here for you.” ▫️
▫️ Right now, in NYC there are 19 kids who have spent their lives in foster care, most in many different homes–who, because they have “aged out” of the system–are forced to start a new life in a gigantic city, utterly Alone. Without a family, without a community, without the tangible things they need to start a life. 
If that sounds like a nearly impossible way to start out, it’s because it is: 1 in 4 youth are homeless within 3 years of aging out of foster care. 
Today we STEP INTO THIS GAP. We help mother these kids. To these brave, tenacious 19, we say: “This will be hard. But we can do hard things. You are not alone. We are here for you.” ▫️
We need to raise $110,500 today so these 19 are not alone and have what they need to start a new life. 
PLEASE GO TO THE LINK IN MY BIO ABOVE ⬆️ AND GIVE. $5, $10, $25 –Whatever you can. This is going to take all of us. Donations are tax-deductible. 
At the link at the top of that page, you can read the full story. Please share it, read it with your kids, and teach them what it means to love wider than your own homes and neighborhoods. 
Or Text the word TR4DREAMS to the # 41444 for a prompt to give. 
Let’s do this.
